Lola at the Library-Anna McQuinn

Toot and Puddle by Holly Hobbie. Toot and Puddle live together in Woonsock Pocket. Toot loves to travel but Puddle is a homebody. Toot travels around the word sending postcards back to his best buddy. They reunite in December when Toot return. This is the same Holly Hobbie of the bigheaded dolls but her pigs are infinitely cuter. Don’t be surprised if you like this better than your children. Try to avoid the cheaper knockoffs by National Geographic Press based on the TV show. These are usually done by other authors. National Geographic Press does an amazing job with nonfiction but these books are a poor imitation of Hobbie’s books.
